Hassled!

Feeling the pressure a wee bit at the moment.The nightmares are back, and getting nastier. And I'm not sleeping so I'm grumpy too. Mind you, I am hormonal at the moment which does not help!

HOWEVER!

Went to see Sally-Ann yesterday, the hair and makeup lady. She has complimented me on my hair, saying it is in 'wonderful condition', and after much discussion we have agreed (grudginly) that I need to have about 3 inches taken off it to 'make the style nice'. For nice, read 'easy to do'... But as I hate having my head messed about with having my hair a bit shorter so that it wont be messed about with for quite so long might be a good idea. It'll grow back!

Need to find some new styles to send her now though, as my original idea of half-up-half-down will cover the expensive embroidery and beading on my dress. I need some 'up' styles to send Mum so that next tme she sees Sally-Ann she can pass them on.

Now... the makeup! Hee hee hee! I used to see Sally-Ann with Mum years and years ago, when she still had a hair salon as well as beauty (she just does beauty now unless it's for a special occasion like weddings) and it shows that she doesn't remember me AT ALL.

As she was applying my make up she was chatting away to me, trying to suss out how I wear my make up. Now, I don't want to say 'goth' , I said 'dark and smoky' because I don't think my make up IS that goth. but maybe I should have done, because when she's finished one eye (my right eye) and held up the mirror I almost burst out laughing.

It was silver and pink, with the thinest line of grey around the socket!!!

Very very pretty, but so much NOT me that it was funny. Really funny! Although I might copy the style for the hen night! In fact, I did say to her that it was ideal for the hen night I was having, but had Mum not mentioned that the wedding was green?

So she did my left eye in green. And that was much better. It's still NOTHING like my usual make up, but then again, when do I ever wear ivory? The shimmery gold which is used, and it seems very librally, will look lovely with the dress, but stupid with my normal attire!

She did also suggest that she covered me in glitter spray too.

I declined!

Aside from the fact that Yorkie would flip his lid if I came anywhere near his velvet jacket (or him at all for that matter) covered in glitter, it will ruin the look I am trying to achive (which is simply; not trash!), not to mention the nagative effect it would have on the dress!

Who wears glitter to their wedding? Again, hen night certainly, but WEDDING???

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
